LAUGHTER AND JOY AND DRESSING UP WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY AT HIGHCLIFFE CASTLE

Capturing the feelings and emotions, and the joy and laughter of the wedding day…

I was so happy I was available when Vicky and Geoff rang me a couple of weeks before their wedding to ask if I was free to film their day; Geoff’s granny was quite elderly and they’d just discovered that she wouldn’t be able to make the trip down to their wedding, and they were so disappointed as they wanted everybody in their family to be part of their special day and to be there.

So in order to include her as much as possible they decided to get a video of their wedding day for her. They’d looked videos from other suppliers but they really didn’t want a romantic video with staged shots, or to focus too much on them; they very much wanted a documentary style film so they could remember their guests and their family after the day was over.

They’d already decided they didn’t want a traditional wedding, they wanted fun for their guests and a party and to spend the day laughing and dancing, and settled on having a fancy dress wedding day, with their children welcome too.

They didn’t have standard bridesmaids and page boys though… oh no, they came as dinosaurs and a Stormtrooper and Princess Leia. And the guests went to town on their costumes, check out the mini videos below for a catwalk glimpse of them.

They had their wedding at Highcliffe Castle and the ushers didn’t know what had hit them when the bridal party and the guests arrrived! The bride wore a fairytale dress by Justin Alexander, and she had the biggest smile I’ve ever seen through her whole wedding.

The groom, and few of the closer family members waited until after the wedding to change into their costumes to surprise the others at the reception held in a marquee in the couple’s garden.

It’s not everyday you see your father dressed up as an oil sheikh with a red beard, or your brother dressed in full Batman gear, a Day of the Dead couple, The Ghosbusters and an entire family of friends coming as The Flintstones!

They made the marquee into a party tent, with a facepainter and games for the children, and the bride’s sister arranged for a surprise presents of a pair of llamas to visit in the afternoon and to walk around with the couple.

A few weeks later I heard from the couple that Geoff’s grandmother loved the video and couldn’t stop watching it and asking them questions about the day. She said she wouldn’t be able to tell anyone she’d seen the video and they wouldn’t believe and think she’d gone totally mad!

KIND WORDS

Vicki and Geoff

“Our wedding day seemed to go by unbelievably quickly and so it’s been wonderful to look back and remember all the little bits we’d already forgotten.

Heather went above and beyond the call of duty and even came to our house the day before the wedding to record the audio for the videos and to film some of the setting up process. Her enthusiasm is infectious and the final videos have more than surpassed our expectations. She produced several different videos of varying lengths and it is obvious that she has put a lot of time, care and effort into the editing. Heather is exceptionally talented and and has a brilliant eye for capturing the special moments – this is what has made the videos so unique and we are both very grateful.”

“We had initially decided not to have a wedding videographer but had a last minute change of heart and we are so glad that we did. “
